A bench not only looks welcoming, but provides function and design to this hardworking area of the home. Here, a long bench allows for baskets to be placed underneath. Hooks line the entire perimeter of the room above the wainscoting, and a charming antique urn for umbrella storage completes the look.

Middlebury Barn Project is featured in Fine Homebuilding’s Blog “Through the Lens” by contributing photographer Susan Teare.
Located where hay wagons once entered the barn, the recessed porch provides an inviting entry. The new front door and sidelight can be covered with a sliding barn door made of old barn wood for privacy while a continuous transom window above lets light in. The rafters and slate roof are original to the structure; siding and windows are new. I shot three night images of this barn on one of the hottest days of summer. The sunset was spectacular and the barn glowed as the light left the sky.

Please visit our portfolio to see more photos of the recently completed Middlebury Vermont Barn Renovation.
A library, mudroom, laundry and pantry were at the top of my clients’ wish list. In this whole house renovation we created all those spaces and enhanced the master bedroom with a small fireplace. The exterior of the home got a face lift too including exterior insulation, new siding and timber framed porches.
I recently received the note below from a satisfied client:
Hi Wags, Joan, and Katie,
What a joy it was for us to be at the cottage this past summer with the new bunkhouse and renovated cottage! Each day, we appreciated the expanded space and observed the special touches and thoughtful details you all incorporated in your work. We again realized how fortunate we were to have the expertise, creativity, and vision of architect, builder, and landscaper who worked together to create such a delightful spot.
The two separate buildings worked so well and the beautiful stonework and landscaping brought them all together. (What good exercise it was to climb those steps several times a day!) We understand the fall has brought changing colors to many of the landscape plants.
The location has always been special to our family but now the renovated cottage and new bunkhouse will make it a comfortable and pleasant place to enjoy with family and friends for years to come.
Many thanks to you all – it was wonderful working with you.
Lynn & Bob
